After 134 games of blood, sweat and tears, we have the 4 best teams of the season who will lock horns for the coveted title. Patna Pirates, UP Yodha, Dabang Delhi and the Bengaluru Bulls have been the best from the rest. Patna Pirates and Dabang Delhi moved into the semi finals as they finished first and second respectively in the points table. UP Yodha had to play the eliminator and they beat the Puneri Paltan to set up a semi final clash with rivals Patna Pirates. The UP Yodha secured their eliminator spot much earlier and look to be the stronger team. But the 132 games played in the season have proved that the mat can be unforgiving as well as rewarding. This will be one of the epic clashes of the season as Dubki King Pardeep Narwal will be up against his old team. He saved his best for the last as he hammered the Puneri Paltan in the eliminator to earn 18 points. On the other hand, the Pirates look comfortable and a well balanced unit. Their raiders and defenders are in top form and they have already set their sights on the 4th title. But they will have to overcome a tenacious UP Yodha which will be high on confidence after their victory in the eliminator. Both teams beat each other once in the league stage and both games were very close. Hence we can expect the semi final to be spicy and fierce.
The Pirates have been the best side in this season. They may have started off in a sedate and cautious way, but they ended up as the top side after playing 22 league games. They were hit by Covid but they managed to recover in time. They have one of the best team combination in this tournament. They have also experimented with their raiders and defenders and have settled into a very good rhythm. Their biggest asset it their consistency and simplicity. They have not used any complicated strategy and have stuck to the basics.
Mohammedreza has been the best defender of the season with 78 successful tackles.
He has scored 81 tackle points while scoring 9 Hi 5’s which is the highest of the season.
The Patna Pirates do not have any of their raider in the top 10 list, but all of them have performed exceedingly well. Initially star raider Monu Goyat spearheaded the attack, but after his issues with injury and form, Sachin Tanwar took over along with Prashanth Rai, Monu and Ghumman Singh. All of them have tormented the opposition with their agility and speed. Sachin has earned 157 raid points in the league stage. The defence has been miserly throughout the season conceding very few all-outs. Defenders like Neeraj Kumar, Sajin and left corner Mohammedreza have been accurate and lethal. This helped the Patna Pirates concede very few points while maintaining a high raiding income. But now all has boiled down to the semi-final. They go home if they lose. They will also be vary of Dubki King Pardeep Narwal who has suddenly found his mojo. He will be difficult to tackle a he would know most of their trade secrets being a former team member. This will be the biggest challenge for the Patna defence. The Pirates lost their first league game to the Yodha by just 1 point and managed to win the next by 2 points. Hence the Pirates will have to work hard to beat the Yodha. This will be an epic contest.
The UP Yodha is one of the vibrant sides of the league. They started off slowly but gained a lot of vigor, intensity and confidence as the league progressed. They won 4 out of their last 5 league games to finish 3rd in the points table with 68 points.
They booked their ticket for the semi-finals after beating the Puneri Paltan in the eliminator. Dubki king Pardeep Narwal saved his best for the last as he earned 18 points in the match. This included 2 huge Super raids which flattened the Paltan. The UP Yodha were trailing in the first half but then Pardeep Narwal fired up his cryogenic engines and looted points at will. This will be the most important weapon for the Yodha in the semi-finals. The UP Yodha is spearheaded by a trio of raiders,Surender Gill, Pardeep Narwal and Shrikant Jadhav. These 3 have collectively earned 432 raid points in the league stage. Surender heads the pack with some scintillating performances. He rose from the shadows of Pardeep Narwal to bulldoze the opposition defenders. Pardeep played the role of the side kick till the eliminator and now he along with Surender Gill will be difficult to handle.
The UP defence has been one of the best in the season. Defenders Sumit, Nitesh Kumar, Shubham Kumar and Ashu Singh have been consistent and fearless. Sumit earned a High 5 in the eliminator as he fearlessly trapped the Puneri raiders. His ankle holds were quite devastating and he will look forward to execute those against the Patna Pirates. The UP defence earned as many as 10 tackle points in the eliminator and inflicted 3 all-outs in the match. Such was the intensity and accuracy of the Yodha that the Paltan had to bow out of the match. But it will not be a cakewalk for the Yodha against the Patna Pirates. The UP defence will have to isolate Sachin Tanwar very early and tackle the others quickly. It will interesting to see how Pardeep Narwal escapes from the clutches of Mohammedreza and Neeraj Kumar. This will be the clash of the Titans.
Welcome to another blockbuster of the season, the first semi-final. This will be a clash of 2 styles of kabaddi. The Pirates play an all round game while the UP Yodha is quite dependent on its defence. Pardeep Narwal ransacked the opposition in the eliminator and he will have to repeat his performance. Surender Gill will have to chip in with good earnings to support Pardeep. The UP defence looked hot and spicy in the eliminator and they will be tested by Sachin Tanwar, Monu Goyat and Ghumman. The Pirates will depend on their complimentary team of raiders and defenders. Though Monu Goyat hasn’t been in the best of form, he will be expected to do what Pardeep did in the eliminator. Defenders Mohammedreza, Neeraj Kumar and Sajin will have to avoid unforced errors in the big match scenario. This will be biggest face-off:
Pardeep/ Surender vs Mohammedreza/ Neeraj Kumar
Monu Goyat/ Sachin Tanwar vs Sumit/ Nitesh.
As this will be a close contest, the third raider will play a crucial role for either team. Expect an edge of the seat thriller!!!!!!!
UP Yodha will win.
